Why Are Leading Organizations Raving About PATTERNS as a Sexual Harassment Training Solution?
Find out why leading American organizations in increasing numbers are finding 'PATTERNS' to be the answer to their sexual harassment prevention needs. Sexual harassment at work is more than a legal issue. It is fundamentally a behavioral problem. PATTERNS takes on the behavioral challenge, arming employees and managers with the information they need to prevent sexual harassment and the tools that will help them to respond when incidents occur.
Through a series of short dramatizations this series describes common patterns of illegal or inappropriate behavior at work and how best to respond. We explore the habitual harasser, the smitten harasser, the bully and the jilted harasser. We also examine problematic management responses to harassment incidents, including the ostrich, the chameleon, the wounded tiger and the mother hen. Lawyers and HR professionals review each situation and present positive alternatives.
Each program in the series can stand alone and may be licensed separately. There are volume discounts if you license the entire series or multiple copies of any program. Each program includes a comprehensive facilitation guide and reproducible handouts as well as optional PowerPoint slides at no additional cost.
Series Objectives: The acclaimed 3-program series, PATTERNS, is intended to explore the behavioral, practical side of sexual harassment, arming employees and managers with the tools they need to effectively prevent incidents in the first place, and to respond appropriately when they either feel harassed or are aware of harassment occurring.
Powerful Dramatizations Make Sexual Harassment PATTERNS Real and Clear
Program 1, Preventing Sexual Harassment (For All Employees):
Preventing Sexual Harassment looks at four common patterns of inappropriate behavior â the habitual harasser, the smitten harasser, the bully and the jilted harasser. How we respond to harassment will be most effective when we recognize why the behavior is occurring. This program arms employees with information and insights to help them determine the best way to get the behavior to stop. A series of dramatizations bring each pattern to life. Attorneys, human resource professionals and a troupe of exceptional actors take us through the legal, psychological, cultural and moral issues.
Program 2, Responding to Sexual Harassment (For Organizational Leaders):
Program 2 is an extension of the first program in both style and content, and we recommend that managers view both parts of the series. Program 2 examines the legal liability issues and questions of personal responsibility that managers and supervisors must face. Using dramatizations, we explore different patterns of how managers often respond to sexual harassment incidents, including the ostrich, the chameleon, the wounded tiger and the mother hen and present more effective alternatives. Finally we discuss how incidents should be investigated and best resolved.
Program 3, Rights & Responsibilities (For New Employee Orientation):
Program 3 is a brief introduction to the issue of sexual harassment prevention intended for new employees. This orientation program describes what sexual harassment is, how it is damaging to the person being harassed, the harasser, the workgroup and the organization, and what an employees rights and responsibilities are in this area.
